Celebrating A New Erotic Gem Release For Cheryl Dragon

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a new Erotic Gem release for Cheryl Dragon!

CRUSHED by Cheryl Dragon

Most women are turned off by Eve's job working with reptiles in the Everglades. Miranda is exception and Eve has fallen hard for her.

Their chemistry is undeniable but Miranda has a secret that could ruin everything.

Hot sex in a swamp proves they're perfect together but sex doesn't solve everything. Can Eve charm the truth out of Miranda?


A lover of unusual things, Cheryl Dragon enjoys writing unique stories with sinfully hot erotic romance or suspenseful mainstream paranormals. Never at a loss for ideas, there are plenty of stories in her brain waiting to be written. Her two favorites book settings are Las Vegas and New Orleans...where anything can happen!

Cheryl lives in the Chicagoland area with her deaf albino cat. By day she crunches and analyzes numbers as an Assistant Controller for a division of a large international conglomerate which leaves the creative juices free for her erotic romance and paranormal suspense novels.

  4. thanks June! I don't write a ton of f/f but when the right characters hit, I can't ignore them:)

  5. Crushed is about two women who want each other but have to talk about one's secret...if they can keep their hands off each other long enough!

    I also have f/f called Sorority Girl Pledge Time. Very hot and fun novella!


    Here's the little blurb:)
    Hazing has never been this hot!

    At the mercy and sexual whim of their kinky sorority president, Ashley and Blanca must work together to please her and each other. However, these former enemies find more than great sex, kinky toys, and Dom/sub play. Lesbian Ashley finds herself falling for the experimenting Blanca.

    In the past Blanca used sex to get what she wanted from men, so women are no different. She finds the pleasure and intense connection is more intimate with women, but true love and great sex in the form of her high school nemesis is just too weird. Still, even when she backslides and brings two men in to play with, Blanca wants Ashley nearby. One night could push them apart or bring them together for good.

    Can they build trust and find love under the wrathful paddle of their sorority president?

  6. Congratulations of the release! You know, I haven't read an f/f focused story. Is it more or less difficult to write than m/f?

  7. hi lil! it's not more difficult, certainly. the characters want to be together:) with a m/m story, sometimes I have to remember to keep the romance front and center in their emotions because men aren't always as romantic in real life as women want them to be:D with women, it can be emotional overload because they're into their own and care about the othes sooo much it's intense. so every pairing (or grouping) has their own challenges and pitfalls...


  8. Congrats on the new release. I do read f/f books.Its nice to see it becoming more mainstream.
    What was your favorite scene to write in this book?


  9. i think my favorite scene was Eve showing up at Miranda's place. she so knows what she wants and isn't shy about it:D

  10. Congratulations on your newest release. I have saw you have had quite a few books released in the past few months, you must be so busy!

    I haven't read much f/f, but I have read some of your books and they have all been good, so that makes me want to read this one.

    Your cat sounds gorgeous! I want one, but I haven't found one that stays nice after it grows up.

    Do you have a favorite author? Did you always want to be an author?

    Thank you so much for the chance to win something from you, the items you are stuffing your tote bag with sound adorable.

  11. Congratulations on your new release. I've seen and read a bit about the Everglades over the years. Did you visit recently as part of your research?


  12. hi Tiff, thanks!!

    i always wanted to be a writer and now i'm lucky enough to call it my day job:)

    favorite authors are hard. i love so many...and i jump from mystery to regency...all over. lol!

    cats are tricky. i like the persians if i were getting a purebred cat. very mellow. watch me write, don't generally need to be on the keyboard. but rather in different. some cate breeds to act more like dogs. ragdolls, devon rexs....very people attached:)

    a deaf cat is tricky. can't get other animals because they can't effectively communicate. but i'm pretty sure she's part siamese...they have the albino gene in their breed.

    i know way too much about cats:D must do a series someday. lol!

  13. hi Marybelle,

    not very recently. RT was in Orlando a few years back. i do have friends who live in FL....the climate supports a lot of animals and when new ones are introduced with no natural have too many. more than the ecosystem can support.

    some days i soak up Animal Planet tv and do a whole bunch of research:)

  14. Glad you get to do something that you love for your day job!

    Lol. Good point, if someone were to ask me my favorite, I'd ask how many can I list.

    I'll have to look into those, I'd love one but I want one that stays nice and wants love, not one that's going to attack me for picking it up or touching it.

  15. Tiff, i do prefer shelter cats...but most of the time you have no idea what breeds they are made up of. some are the sweetest cats in the world...and others are moody.

    maybe adopt an older cat whose personality is already established. then you get to adopt a cat for less $, help a shelter, and they won't grow out of the kitten sweetness...

  16. Congratulations on the book! What's your cat's name?


  17. Will these characters be revisited again in another story?

  18. the cat's name is Q. like the all-powerful star trek character:)

  19. hi Leni,

    no, i don't have plans now to revisit them. i wrote the story they need to tell...but you never know what'll turn up in the future.


  20. Oh I love that! You had me going back through google looking up who that character was. I haven't watched that show in years, but my dad used to love watching it with me.

  21. lol tiff, yes a handicapped kitty needed an allpowerful name:)

  22. Wow, Cheryl--congrats on such a hot little gem! I don't read much F/F, but I know you do such a good job! How fun! Do you have other stories set in the Everglades? It's such a neat setting!
